How to Make a Construction Paper Witch Craft for Kids

What you need:

  • cardboard or construction paper for the background (black is great, any other color will do)
  • construction paper in green, orange, purple, black, white, and yellow (or other colors)
  • marker
  • scissors and glue
  • optional: large googly eyes

Step by Step Tutorial

Start with the background. Any shape will do, but this portrait craft really stands out in a circle. Cut a circle out of black (or other) construction paper.

You can also use regular paper and glue it onto cardstock (cereal boxes work great for this).

Draw an oval shape on a sheet of green paper (make it smaller than the circle). Also, draw the lines for the neck.

Cut out the green face of the witch.

Now let’s move to the hair. Take a sheet of orange paper. Trace the top part of the witch’s head and draw a straight line from the sides. You should see an elongated half-moon shape. Cut it out.

Cut into this shape, making strips about half an inch / one centimeter wide. Don’t cut all the way through.

Starting from the end, roll the paper strips (you can roll them around a pen, or roll them without). Slightly unroll them. This will give our witch a nice little hair doo.

Want to make the hair even nicer? Stick in a few more paper strips and curl them.

This witch certainly has stylish hair!

Cut out circles out of white paper, draw in the details, and stick them on. Alternatively, you can also use googly eyes.

Cut a triangle shape for the hat and stick it on top of the head.

Also, add the long rectangle for the hat as well as other details.

All done!
